Your responsibilities may vary based on the manpower size, nature of business and business location. The big difference would be the change in management style. In a traditional PSU, HR manager can expect assistance from couple of clerks, steno/secretary and junior management guys. When you shift to a MNC private establishment, you need to change your mind set (if you are pre occupied with 'sitting duck' management style) and there will be a big time demand for proactiveness. For eg: - in a PSU, attrition is not a critical issue and HR manager is not going to be appraised on the grounds of attrition chart. If you are a person with high levels of energy with a +ve attitude for learning and continuous improvement, you can really enjoy your new assignment. Best of luck

1. Get inputs on corporate HR plan, strategies and policies from your investors

2. Get approval for Annual budget for HR department, management systems, training etc. (board may ask you to submit a plan, then you need to have a thorough understanding on all aspects of the department- you can request for 2 weeks time)

3.Based on the budget you need to plan your activities; also there will be questions like (should I hire 1/2 HR folks or should I manage the entire HR department activities with the help of integrated HRIS etc.)

4.HR head would be responsible for certain forms and returns with regard to employee laws (national as well as local)(get everything verified by legal experts) and keep track of these returns (high priority)

5.Employee bonds and agreements (get everything verified by legal experts)

6.Prepare list of tasks (annual as well as quarterly) and schedule tasks

7.Learn the existing HR processes and identify non-value adding elements and suggest for HR Process streamlining and automation

8.Maintain good relationship with all employees and try to learn the employee satisfaction levels, develop channels for informal employee information

9. Evaluate your self on a weekly basis against the accomplishment of your tasks (you can use MS Projects)
